We all lived through the days of "mixed tapes". Bill is still fond of making them, only in 2009 they are in CD form. We stumbled upon a "mixed cd" entitled Rap 1 made by Bill in approximately 2005. (I guess there was a Rap 2 in the works maybe?) Bill popped it into the cd player and I was instantly taken back to junior high. Songs such as Kris Kross-Jump, Paperboy-Ditty, House of Pain-Jump Around, Snow-Informer and Vanilla Ice-Ice Ice Baby. I suppose that since ice ice baby was one of the only songs that the kids could understand, it became an instant favorite. Now when we get into the car, before the buckles are even buckled, I have two requests for ice ice baby. They have no idea what the song is about, but their favorite part is the "boyyyyyyy" at the end of "yo vanilla, kick it one time boyyyyyy". Who know..maybe their generation can bring him back.

Whenever I need to cook or clean the kitchen, all I have to do is open the dishwasher. Adeleine will sit and pull all the spoons and forks out and play with them for a long time. It keeps her busy longer than any toy we own, and these days I need to keep her busy. Not only do I love my dishwasher because it scrubs nasty dishes so I don't have to, it entertains my 10 month old.
